 Since the year of 1989, multinational mining companies have been coming to Turkey in order to mine gold using the cyanide leaching process. Eurogold, an Australian and Canadian joint venture, is one of them. Their mine is situated in Bergama. The people living in Bergama and the 17 surrounding villages started to resist the project. The people won all the instances of their legal struggle. However, the mine still operates. The story of “Alethea” is about the people and their long struggle. We followed their struggle since 1996.
